      You might take a trip on the western side of the Sierras. Start at a
      trailhead such as Lodgepole, Crescent Meadow or Roadend in Sequoia, or
      start at Hetch Hetchy or White Wolf in Yosemite. The western slope is
      more gradual, there is much more vegetation, and the conditions will be
      more summerlike sooner.

          hike up to Rae Lakes. If the snow is too radical on Glen Pass you could
          always go back out the same way you came in. But maybe Glen would be
          melted out enough by then to get over with ease.

            Consider any of the eight sections (1 to 6-days each) of the Tahoe Rim Trail, great right now for thru hiker practice in spring conditions (snow and creek crossings), yet close to civilization for quick bail-outs.
